Never, I repeat, Never focus on the bad things that happen in your life. It’s a very simple way for you to go into a downward spiral that is very hard to stop.
An object in motion tends to remain in motion. I believe Isaac Newton said that but, I am no scientist (at least not a physicist) so don’t quote me on that.
I do believe it’s important to acknowledge the bs that happens but, when we pay too much attention to the things that happen, it gets very easy to pity yourself.
Obviously, there’s a reason why I say this. There usually is.
It seems like we must be somewhat dispassionate when it comes to our “problems”. We can’t allow them to totally overwhelm our thought process. Emotions never seem to be able to play a “large” role in any of our day-to-day activity.
Of course, we need them to make important decisions but, when it comes to screw-ups we must look at them objectively without care.
Not completely true but I believe it gives a very rough overview of what I’ve been thinking lately.
The reason why I’m saying any of this is because I kind of screwed up a few days ago. Big time.
While I won’t give specifics. I will say that I got myself into a situation that I kind of can’t just quit myself out of. I need to think. A lot.
While thinking I also need to objectively figure out what it is that I did wrong.
